OFW Killed by Filipino Boyfriend in Taiwan

In Taiwan, an OFW was killed by her Filipino boyfriend

TAIWAN – A Filipino man was arrested by Taiwanese police on July 19 in Taoyuan City after being linked to the killing of his girlfriend, an OFW.

The victim, a Filipina migrant worker known as Anne (pseudonym), had failed to show up for work on July 18, prompting her employer and recruitment agency to visit her rented house. They discovered her body, which had multiple stab wounds, and her residence was splattered with blood in Zhongli District.

Following an evidence trail, Zhongli police apprehended Anne’s boyfriend, identified as Nicolas (pseudonym), as the prime suspect in the murder at around 4 am on July 19. Later that afternoon, authorities, including a prosecutor and a forensic pathologist, conducted an autopsy on the victim’s body, revealing signs that the murderer may have attempted to dismember her.

However, an insider from the police department informed TVBS News that there wasn’t enough concrete evidence to conclusively prove Nicolas as the murderer. While the prosecutor’s office believes he is the suspect, there were no direct pieces of evidence, such as a murder weapon, fingerprints, or clothes at the crime scene, linking him to the crime. The insider suggested that the prosecutor’s office considers Nicolas a potential accomplice, but they lack sufficient evidence to directly implicate him.

Preliminary investigations by the police indicate a possible motive for the crime, pointing to a dispute in the couple’s relationship. TVBS reported that Anne and Nicolas had been in a long-term relationship. Anne had been working in Taiwan for several years and lived alone in Zhongli District.
